On Sept 28th, 2022 Hurricane Ian dealt a devastating blow to Pine Island, we have now completed "Repainting The Mona Lisa"
The main house is named "Villa Key West" it is not actually in Key West, which just over 100 miles to the south, but rather it has the style, the feel, the flora and the charm of a home in Key West with much more space and privacy!
YOU ARE THE ONLY GUESTS HERE!
"Villa Key West" is not actually in Key West, it is the name of the Key West style house on this property in St James City, Florida. The Coconut Cabana is a separate guesthouse, adjacent to the pool and only a few feet from the waters edge of San Carlos Bay. You share the entire property only with your hosts/owners Liz and Parker whom reside in the main house. The Coconut Cabana is limited to 2 persons.
Privacy and solitude is rare when it comes to Florida waterfront, yet this unique vacation property with 380 feet of shoreline and tropical landscaping has just that, with sweeping views of Sanibel Island and it's blinking lighthouse in the distance, you truly feel you have stepped onto a lush tropical paradise far away from the city. Being that this is on the Intracoastal Waterway, you always see a parade of pleasure boats, luxury yachts, maritime travelers and commercial fishing vessels passing close by. The scenery is ever changing and always exciting, Manatee, Dolphin and numerous species of birds share the water. Watch Pelicans, Frigates, Terns, Osprey, Eagles and Cormorants soaring overhead or diving for their dinner just feet away as you lay poolside.
St James City is a small village on the southern tip of Pine Island, the largest island in Florida (roughly 16 square miles). It is hundreds of acres of tropical fruit plantations, exotic palm farms and miles of mangrove shoreline along with residential canals, but it is not a beach island. Gulf beaches are close by but do require a boat/ferry ride or a drive off the Island. Pine Island is the last remaining experience of charismatic "Old South West Florida" left. It has friendly people, wonderful restaurants, fun bars and active marinas, many are only a short walk, bicycle or golf cart ride away from your cabana. Truly an unforgettable experience awaits you here.
Villa Key West is the home of your host and hostess, Parker and Liz. The Cabana is a separate unit that is closest to the pool and San Carlos Bay. Your stay at The Coconut Cabana allows you full access to the pool, grounds, docks, pier and the common areas beneath the main house.
The Cabana is limited to 2 overnight guests.
St James City is a Golf Cart community. Often available with your stay as a courtesy is the stylish "Lectric Lizzy golf cart (when available) to visit the quaint town, fun restaurants and businesses, meet other locals, explore the neighborhood
